1,063cc V-twin with lots of torque
Clean, quiet shaft drive
2011 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic model Features
1,063cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 2 valves per cylinder, 75° V-twin produces outstanding low- and mid-range torque - maximum torque is reached at only 2,500 rpm - for exceptional overall cruising performance.
Lightweight forged pistons provide excellent durability while reducing reciprocating mass for fast throttle response.
Ceramic composite cylinder plating ensures superior heat dissipation for better cooling, less friction and longer engine life.
Thick cylinder cooling fins enhance the stylish look while increasing cooling efficiency and reducing mechanical noise.
Dual Mikuni BSR 37mm carburetors with throttle position sensors (T.P.S.) feature carburetor heaters and handy, side-mounted air filter to ensure great throttle response and optimum power throughout the rev range.
Transistorized coil ignition provides a hot spark for sure starts and is maintenance-free.
Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce maintenance and mechanical engine noise.
One-way, cam clutch-type starter decreases mechanical noise during starting.
Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission is well suited to both city and highway use. 5th gear is an overdrive gear for reduced engine rpms at highway speeds for a smooth comfortable ride.
Classic heel-toe shifter is a throwback to yesteryear.
Low-maintenance, chrome, exposed shaft drive delivers superior reliability and a clean, quiet ride. No chain to adjust or lube!
2-into-2 exhaust system with dual shotgun-style, staggered pipes plays outstanding V-twin music. Replacement with aftermarket mufflers is simple.
Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful CO and HC exhaust emissions.
Numerous chromed engine parts reinforce this motorcycle's quality image.
Low-slung, large-diameter, double-cradle steel frame creates a strong, stylish machine with precise, predictable handling.
Long, 1,645mm (64.8") wheelbase means a long and low retro profile, with spacious ergonomics for added rider comfort and solid, stable handling.
Beefy, 41mm front fork with 140mm (5.5") of wheel travel smoothes out the bumps for excellent ride quality.
Fork shrouds, top triple clamp, and one-piece handlebar holder are chromed for a quality appearance.
Preload-adjustable, single rear shock lowers centre of gravity for better handling and a plush ride. There are 9 preload adjustments that allow the rider to tailor spring settings to match load and road conditions.
Rear shock is tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 113mm (4.5").
Low 710mm (28") seat height enhances maneuverability and provides additional rider confidence by allowing most riders to put their feet flat on the ground.
Dual 298mm front disc brakes with twin piston calipers provide strong, confidence-inspiring stopping power.
282mm rear disc brake with opposed piston caliper
Comfortably placed, full-size rider floorboards enhance ride by minimizing vibration and fatigue.
Wide tires on beautiful spoked, chrome wheels help create that Classic look.
Wide handlebars enhance both overall ergonomics and retro styling.

Eye-catching, tank-mounted speedometer features digital odometer, tripmeter
and warning lights.
